Through its potential to bridge science, society, and policy, Citizen Science is in a unique position to help generate responsible research, innovations, and policies in relation to societal challenges. While there are resources provided to researchers and practitioners on how to tap into the potential of Citizen Science, the knowledge and skills needs of the citizens, citizen science practitioners and many other social actors to achieve such participation is frequently overlooked. Needs assessment & future foresight report of the Erasmus+ project “Digital Citizen Science: Network, transfOrm, groW” aims to address this gap via providing insights concerning citizens’ behaviours, motivations, and change signals on Citizen Science at the European level. The report captures and delivers on the needs assessment research and findings, that is generated via futures design principles.
